Is NBC’s I Feel Bad the First “Cancellation” of the 2018-2019 TV Season?

The 2018-2019 TV season is nearly eight weeks old and it appears NBC’s new sitcom I Feel Bad is the first “cancellation” of the season. The show isn’t officially cancelled, of course, because the networks typically don’t cancel shows during the season anymore. But NBC has not picked up additional episodes of I Feel Bad past its initial 13-episode order. The network insists the plan was always to produce 13 episodes of I Feel Bad.

From a November 8th press release:

“I Feel Bad,” which was always intended as a 13-episode season because a pair of upcoming comedies still need to be scheduled (“Abby’s,” “A.P. Bio”), will conclude in December. A decision on its future will be determined at a later date.

According to Deadline Hollywood, the odds are against I Feel Bad getting a second season due to low ratings and weak reviews. If it isn’t renewed, and no other new shows end or get yanked off the air before it airs its final episode, I think I Feel Bad will earn the dubious honor of being this season’s first cancellation.

For the record, I Feel Bad currently ranks second in the Let’s Predict the First Cancellation of the 2018-2019 Season poll, just behind ABC’s The Connors.

  1. According to the Futon Critic, only 10 episodes were officially scheduled for broadcast, meaning 3 episodes are either going to be shelved or burned off. Don’t forget that in the last 2 seasons, most fall cancellations weren’t confirmed until the May upfronts. As a result, we have a few other shows still in play. They are The Alec Baldwin Show [pushed off to Saturday], Rel [lowest rated Fox show in nearly 30 years], and my personal pick Happy Together[still not picked up by CBS, even though the other Monday freshmen have been].

    1. UPDATE: Episodes 10 and 11 are scheduled for the next 2 weeks, and according to Futon Critic, the last 2 episodes will be burned off on December 27th, a low-rated Christmas week slot. Therefore, even though NBC will not make it official for a few more months, I Feel Bad will be the first dead show of the fall season!

  2. Love the star and her parents, but every episode feels as if I’ve seen it before. The guilty, overworked mom may need to be put to rest for a while.

  3. Fake news is all over the place, and it’s even spreading to cancellation news! 2 posts on You Tube insist that “The Conners” and “Murphy Brown” are going off, but if you check the sources these posts both come from conservative news outlets. It’s no secret that certain people have it in for these shows, the former for killing Roseanne and the latter for Trump jokes. According to legit sources, neither show has been canceled, so don’t believe the hype!
